If its a scary dream it seems like it lasts for hours. But I would guess about 10 minutes or so.

Although it may seem like we're dreaming from the instant we fall asleep until the moment we wake up, the average visit to Neverland is actually far shorter. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, people spend an average of two hours dreaming each night. Dreams "almost always" occur during REM sleep, when the body experiences "rapid eye movement, loss of reflexes, and increased pulse rate and brain activity." Your ability to remember your dreams depends a lot on your personality. Newsweek explains that introverts tend to remember their nocturnal adventures better than extroverts. In terms of the subject matter, males and females often dream about the same things. Again according to Newsweek, 73% of men and 74% of women have dreamed of falling. OK, but how long does an average dream last? Depending on who you ask (or which link you visit), a dream can last anywhere from a matter of seconds to 45 minutes. We were unable to find an official answer, but several links we visited suggest dreams last about 15 minutes on the average, and that people dream one to two hours per night, fitting in about four to seven dreams.

I'd assume less time than we think we've dreamed about it. Some dreams feel like they've last the entire night, it's really an amazing feat.

If it is bad dream, I could recollect that it lasts for hours in the night. If it is good dream it is short and sweet.
